    my eyes held hostage on film
    a flash conveying them as bright and violent
    nothing is
    as is
    when rendered two-dimensional
    lines and shades stay true
    but false light disassembles every hue

    no camera can capture
    that thread between your smile
    that you silently weave
    through the hole in my melancholy
    to fold and seal the seams
    of my greatest expectations
    of my most frightening dreams

    and i spread four limbs back upon the asphalt
    i'm tired of capturing things from the same angle
    the view from tomorrow is tainted
    by everything we thought would happen
    but couldn't bring forth from the source
    and what can be found
    from the platform of yesterday
    is as bright and indecipherable as the dawn
    and to think
    i just want something to develop
    something to break and unfold
    instead of the same telltale colors
    that you used to paint your perception with

  3. wow
    this holds no bars..

    how to be whole in this life is all we have.
    how to accept how things used to be
    and are going to be, even
    when we move on and learn.
    this is how i felt after reading..
    great piece
    love n peace from saff
